A/N: Hey everyone! You guys really seem to like my Phillip stuff, because it keeps getting requested😊 This one is in a modern au, and it’s pretty fluffy. Enjoy!
“Tag! You’re it!"
"Tag! Now you’re it!"
"Hey no tag backs!” It was a beautiful day. You were outside with your best friend, Phillip. You two were inseparable, ever since birth. Your mother was good friends with the Schuylers, so it was no wonder that you and Phillip would grow up together.
"Phillip,“ you heard Mrs. Hamilton call, "you know you can’t tag Y/N back.” She used a motherly tone, but she was always so nice.
“Okay mom!” Phillip called back and you both giggled.
The two of you paused for a moment, taking a breather. It started to grow quiet, but you didn’t let it last for long. “Race me to the swing set!” You called out, already halfway there.
“Not fair!” Phillip wined.
“That’s fair!” You shot back, trying to cover up the fact that you were completely aware that it wasn’t.
“How so?” He continued.
“Race me back!” Phillip ran all the way back to the patio. “Now were even.”
At the time, you thought you and Phillip would be best friends forever. And nothing would ever change.
When you reached the age of sixteen, you and Phillip didn’t have the same relationship. You were still friendly, but now you had feelings for him. And those feelings continued up until you left for college.
It was one of the last days of your senior year, and you were walking through the hallway. As you turned a corner, you walked straight into Phillip. “Hey, watch where you’re go-” The two of you made eye contact. “Oh, sorry Phillip.”
“No, um, don’t worry about it. I was the one walking on the left.”
“Yeah…” Stupid. You thought to yourself. No wonder he doesn’t like you. “So,” You tried to fill the awkward silence. “College is coming up.”
“Um, yeah.” The two of you stood there, letting the silence incase you. Years ago, you would be halfway down the hallway by now, trying to race him. But you just let the silence draw out. “Well, I gotta go.” He said, slowly walking away as he talked.
“Um, yeah,” you looked at the floor, “I do too.” He left you alone. The entire walk to class was filled with your thoughts of how embarrassing you were. “At least college is starting soon, Y/N.” you whispered the reassuring words to yourself.
It was a glorious day. The sun was shining. It was so beautiful outside it could be on the cover of a magazine. You were walking through your college town with your new friends. You had hit it off with your roommate, Theodosia, immediately, and the two of you befriended the pair across the hallway. The four of you were walking through the downtown part, with shopping bags in hand. Everything was lovely.
“Hey, Y/N.” Theodosia said.
“That guy over there is definitely looking at you.” Following her gaze, you noticed that the guy she was talking about was Phillip. Yes, that Phillip. You fell silent.
“I think that’s Phillip Hamilton,” another one of your friends said. “He’s so cute. You should go say hi, Y/N!”
You were about to say no, but your friends had already walked away, and Phillip was making his way over to you.
“Phillip! What are you doing here?” You tried to act calm, but you clearly weren’t succeeding.
“I didn’t tell you I was going to Kings College?”
“Um, no I don’t think so.” Pausing for a moment, you tried to think of a way out of an awkward conversation with your high school crush. “Hey, I gotta get going but-”
“Please,” Phillip placed a hand on your shoulder. “don’t go. Do you want to get coffee or something?”
You couldn’t believe that Phillip actually convinced you to get coffee, but there you were, in a coffee shop, with Phillip. “So, what’s new with you?” You tried to make conversation, but it just sounded awkward.
“Listen, Y/N. I wanted to tell you something.” He clearly wasn’t looking for playful banter. “I don’t know if you noticed, but I had a huge crush on you in high school. Well, I’m sure you noticed, it was pretty obvious.”
“Wait, what?” You were so confused. Phillip didn’t like you. At least that’s what you thought.
“You didn’t notice? I always thought that you were kind of out of my league.”
“Phillip, I had a crush on you in high school.”
“Yeah, it was pretty obvious.” You both laughed, which reminded you of when you were little.
After wrapping up with coffee, you and Phillip went out for a walk. As you strolled through the greenery on campus, you shared stories about how the two of you had massive crushes on each other.
“Wait,” Phillip began. “So you’re saying that we could have been dating three years ago?”
You paused for a moment, the replied, “And I could have done this three years ago.” At that moment, you leaned in and kissed Phillip. As your lips attached, you began to think, I can’t believe I’m doing this. He’s gonna think I’m an idiot. The exact opposite happened. Phillip kissed you back and wrapped his arms around you waist.
From them on, you and Phillip were inseparable, just like before.
